In a jagged coral forest lies a menacing creature waiting for the opportunity of lunch. He is dressed in camo, blending in with an environment that he cannot easily maneuver through. Entering upper right is the Anthias fish. So boldly colored he seems to be saying, "just try to get me" as he effortlessly passes between the coral branches. The coral supplies a safe haven for prey as well as a means of ambush for the predator. What the coral gets out of this deal is unclear. Together, the correlation among these three animals reveal the setting to a possible skirmish. The outcome is unknown.
